Hi,

I'm a newbie on Kace 2000  and I would like to know how to proceed in order to deactivate Internet Explorer 8 through a command line or a GPO.

Thanks,

Valerie

Microsoft gives the following command that can be ran through a dos command

FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-8*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /norestart"

I have not tested this command and do not recommend running it on a production machine. If it works it is a simple thing to put it in a batch file and script via KACE as a shell command or batch dependency

Thanks for your answer.

I've tested the command and found:

-it must be executed twice with administrator rights (I found this on different forums)

- I dion't have in "%WINDIR%\servicing\Packages" files starting with
Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-8* so I replaced this name with
Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer* but when I run this command, I get many "access denied" errors with code 0x80070005 on several files.

- after having executed twice this command, ie8 is still present under Control Panel

I anyone can help me ...

Thanks.

Hello,

 

I used this command for the rollback of Windows Internet Explorer 10.0 for the 9.0 for the procedure was successful.  

I made the alteration of the command for the rollback of Windows Internet Explorer 9.0 for the 8.0 (native of Windows 7), was successfully executed.  

I also tested the rollback of Windows Internet Explorer 11.0 for the 10.0, it was also removed with success. They follow some below prints and the commands.

 

 

# Rollback command line of IE 9.0 for IE 8.0

FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-*9.*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /norestart"

 

# Rollback command line of IE 10.0 for IE 9.0

FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-*10.*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /quiet /norestart"

 

# Rollback command line of IE 11.0 for IE 10.0

FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-*11.*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /quiet /norestart"

 

 

Obs.: The command should be put in a file batch and executed as administrator, as already mentioned in the previous comments.

 

After the procedure, you will need to restart the machine for the changes to take effect.

 

 

Greetings.
